All new patrons must provide the staff with an I.D. for access.  Please fill out the Item Request Form to retrieve materials. While handling collections patrons may use pencils, laptops, notebooks, and digital cameras. Food and drink are not allowed near our collections. Many of the items in our Special Collections are rare, unique, or fragile. To ensure their continued stability, please follow specific handling protocol.
